Project Preferences

Fill out the form below by the end of Friday, August 31 with your project preferences. If you do not, you will lose 10% of your final grade and I will assign you to whatever group I want. By now you should have read all the project descriptions.

I will feed these preferences you give me below to my program to find a solution where all groups are of 4 or 5 students while giving everyone their best possible choice.

If you are on a approved startup team, do not use this form. You already have a team.

TIP: If you first login to this website you will be able to change your preferences after submissions, but before the deadline.

Selected Startup Projects

There were 16 startup projects and all 16 startup projects were randomly selected (we don't have that many client projects this year). The selected teams are shown below.

If you are on one of these startup teams then you can now start to work on Milestone 1.

Status and Deadlines

Midnight tonight is the deadline for submitting your startup proposal. Right now there are already 13 submitted, so maybe all will be accepted? maybe not. We will have to see how many more come in. Tomorrow I will post here the randomly-selected winning startup teams.

Also, our class discussion page shows that 50 of you have yet to accept the invite to join our GitHub org and discussion. How very anti-social of you. BTW, if you lost the email invite then just login to github and then go to our org page to accept the invite.

Startup Project Ideas Looking for More Team Members

Below I will be posting messages from students in this class that have an idea for a startup project but have not found enough other students to join them (each team must be 4 or 5 students). If you want me to post your idea, just email me your idea. With only 20 or so client projects, we will be needing lots of startup projects this year!

Client Project Proposals 2018-19

Below are the client project proposals for our 2018-19 Capstone courses that I have received so far. I will be updating this page as new proposals arrive. This year we have over 150 students in the course.

You have two choices (detailed explanation here):

  1. Choose to work on one of the projects below. If so, all you have to do is wait until I post a form on this site where you will list your top 5 projects, in order. I will then assign you to a project, trying to give everyone their highest-rated project.
  2. Choose to work on your own startup project. If so, you will have to find other students in the class (each team must have 4 or 5 members, exactly) and form your own team. Then tell me your idea and your team. If I approve, you are done. I will post the list of approved startup project on this site, before the deadline for 1. (above).

Final Demo Presentation Times

The assigned times for the final demos are below. They will be held in the Storey Innovation Center room 1400. Times are approximate. Teams are required to attend for the duration of their time slot. These demos are open to the public. Feel free to invite your client and friends.

You can also see all the video demos online.

For the April 30, 1:00 pm -- 4:00 pm time slot we have:
